I have my ESXi 5.1 pointing to my syslog server.  It is sending all log levels there.  I would like to only send error and above as I only care about any errors to be proactive with any situations that may arise.

I have changed Config.HostAgent.log.level value to error and rebooted the syslog service.  It is still logging info and above.

Does anyone know how to change this to actually get it working correctly?  I have not found a whole lot on the internet that is helpful.
